widely criticized for its flickering ghosts

Man-Pac Theology.

EATER OF GHOSTS
When all are eaten, Man-Pac is taken to the next stage

When all lives have been lost, the game ends

The Prophet Midway
  The enemies turn deep blue, reverse direction and usually move more slowly

When an enemy is eaten, its eyes remain 

Saint NAMCO
  In even later stages, the ghosts do not become non-dangerous

Four enemies roam the maze 

 
  each enemy with its own distinct personality in order to keep from becoming impossibly boring

Despite the seemingly random nature of the enemies, their movements are strictly deterministic

The sacred text of Iwatani
 One life should be able to play the game indefinitely. However, a bug keeps this from happening

 
Based on the concept of eating.

    1. I think it might be a 19th century depiction of Cholera. Not sure where it came from.
